Teacher Resigns After Being Put on Leave over Ebola Panic

A Kentucky elementary school teacher resigned from her job after St. Margaret Mary Catholic School kept her out over fears from students and parents about Ebola. Susan Sherman recently returned from doing mission work in Kenya, where there are no current cases of Ebola.

The school, however, took steps out of an abundance of caution. They placed her on leave for a 21-day period. Sherman blasted the school’s decision as ignorance, because again, Kenya doesn’t have Ebola.

Ebola fears all over the country have led to schools panicking and keeping students and teachers away because of community concerns, even in cases where the people in question hadn’t visited Ebola-stricken nations.
